    A Really Nice Leader

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This Powerflex Plus leader is easily becoming my favorite all around leader. It works great for pretty much any type of fly fishing because of how durable, clear, and strong it is. Even though it is a blend of both nylon and copolymer (for extra strength) it still offers quite a soft touch when throwing flies and ensuring you have a delicate presentation. Overall, definitely enjoy the extra strength and durability that it offers over mostly all other leaders, while still being a great all around go to leader for whatever style of fly fishing you are looking to tackle.

    Does What You Want it To

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Strong, reliable, and reasonably priced. What more do you need? Got this linked up to a Rio fly line and Rio tippet, although there would be no issue mixing and matching.

    Leading Leader

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This leader is great. It holds up well and is super strong. Comes in a lot of weights so you can typically find the perfect one for the occasion. It's all I use now.

    Great Product

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These pair well with Rio tippet. They're very strong and I've never had any issues with them. I carry a variety of sizes with me at all times on the water.

      Great tapered leader. Typically go with a 6x and 5x option for the fishing here in UT. If you are going after the monsters, the 4x and 3x are also great to stock up on. Pair this with the RIO Flurocarbon tippet for the ultimate combo.

      Wouldn't trust any other tapered leader!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Love this leader, it works great especially for dry fly fishing it presents the fly very nice! It knots very well have never had it rip on me.

      Standard nylon leader.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I prefer these to other nylon leaders mainly due to the fact that they're perfectly clear and don't have a green tint to them. I feel the lack of tint makes them better for tail waters, which we have a lot of here in Utah. They're not as strong as Fluoro, but they get the job done. Plus, they pair well with Rio tippet.
